We had such a great holiday. I know this post is a little late, but here we go. We started the holiday off at Matthew's grandparents house in Forney. This was Nathan's first official Turkey day!

He was so cute in his turkey shirt. We always take a few pictures before we stuff our faces!

The Skinner clan!

Our family

Nathan and his cousins...Holli and Colton....Aren't they so cute!!!

Aunt Jamie bought this stuffed turkey for Nathan....it was so sweet, thanks aunt jamie...he loved it!

Granny and PaPa telling us what they are thankful for....they are such sweet people.

Me and Kelly hanging out outside....it was such a beautiful day!

Nathan and Colton playing in the floor...they are only 3 months apart!

We ended the night with all the cousins taking a bath together. It was precious!

It was such a great day. As you can see, we all had SO much to be thankful for. Nathan stayed the night with his cousins because Matthew had to be at work early on Friday and I had to catch all the black Friday sales. Nathan had so much fun with them. He stayed in the room with aunt kelly and uncle danny. We know he was in good hands. He loves them.

Nathan and aunt Kelly

Thanks for taking such good care of our little man! He even got to go to the Christmas tree farm with Mimi and Papa. By the look on his face, you can tell he had fun!

What a great time he had with the entire Skinner clan! Thanks to all of you!

As I mentioned earlier, I went shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving. I know, I know, its crazy. It is a family tradition the girls in the family do every year.....we LOVE it. Here we are eating lunch...at 10:30 LOL. We were up so early that we had to eat lunch early.

Stacy and I showed up wearing the exact same shirt....great minds think(or dress) alike! We shopped for fourteen hours, needless to say, we were exhausted.

Saturday, we spent the day with my mom and dad.The boys took chritmas pictures and made ginger bread houses.

Getting ready to decorate...Nathan was so excited!

He couldn't wait to dig in!

Once he tasted the icing...it was over

Gammy and her boys

Nathan's first gingerbread house!

Is he not a cute little boy?

Saturday night we had one more Thanksgiving meal with my dads parents, Meme and Paw. The food was delicious. Nathan chewed on the chicken bone!

We played games with Reese

And then we all played in the living room floor. It was a great way to end our Thanksgiving holiday.

Like I said earlier, w had so much to be thankful for this year. We have great families! We love you all! I can't help but think of the song "count your blessings, name them one by one, count your blessings see what God has done!"God has done some wonderful things in our lives. We are so blessed and so thankful for everyone in our lives and so thankful to God for them.

  1. Those pictures of the families really do remind us that we both have great families who love to spend time with us. Nathan is the cutest lil boy ever I think.
